rsync hangs when target disk is full
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
When running rsync through ssh to another host, it silently hangs if the target
disk fills up.
Linux 2.6.10-1.770_FC3 #1 Thu Feb 24 14:00:06 EST 2005 i686 athlon i386
on both machines.
Reproducible 90% of the time. E.g., if the disk fills up while in the midst of
sending a large file, rsync hangs silently. But, if the disk is already full
before sending a file (I think?), then you might get an error message like
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes: phase "unknown"
[sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: write failed on "foo": No space left on device (28)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c(305)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (2256357 bytes received so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(359)
unexpected tag 109
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(689)
But not usually.
My arguments, for the record:
--rsh ssh --recursive --links --perms --times --owner --group --sparse
--hard-links --delete --force --verbose
